Alicia Vikander Reveals How She & Michael Fassbender Fell in Love

Alicia Vikander Reveals How She & Michael Fassbender Fell in Love

Alicia Vikander looks stunning on the cover of Vanity Fair‘s September 2016 issue.

The 27-year-old Oscar-winning actress opened up about falling in love with her boyfriend Michael Fassbender while working on their upcoming movie The Light Between Oceans.

The stars spent a month isolated in a lighthouse and Alicia admits she was feeling “terrified and very alone” at the beginning of the shoot, but Michael helped her feel comfortable.

“He was very sweet at letting me in… He was like, ‘Can you please give me a note? What do you think I should do?’ It was such a sweet thing to kind of let me in,” she said.

Michael raved about her in an interview for the issue.

“She doesn’t take anything for granted,” he said. “With a lot of these actresses coming out, there’s this bravery that you don’t see so much in male actors. . . . I noticed this as well with Lupita [Nyong’o] in 12 Years a Slave—this focus and understanding that there’s an opportunity given to you and you grab it… [Alicia] doesn’t mind taking a character she’s playing to an ugly place. Her level of commitment made me focus and make sure I was as committed.”

    Hopefully whoever wrote the interview for her wasn’t a creeper like the guy who interviewed Margot Robbie.

    It’s amazing how they keep trying to make her happen. She doesn’t have the “it” factor.

  • Anna

    She’s dull and boring. Her acting doesn’t do anything for me either.

  • Lana

    HAHAHAHA even when Michael should talk about her, he can’t find an original praise that he has to remember how kick-ass Lupita (THE REAL star) was and is.. It’s remarkable though, how Vikander has been quoted multiple times as saying she keen on protecting personal life and being private and whatnots, yet that at least 1/3 of the VF article contains tidbit details about Fassbender (the ones that is intended to mix up between revealing a supposed-relationship and making The Light Between Oceans appealing at the same time). If she and people say she’s a great actress? then please, proof that she doesn’t need this kind of sell-out mentions and covers and sugar-coated article to sell her movie.

  • Bench

    So they’re trying to make the “they forced me to live with him” creepy story romantic? How are they selling this movie???

  • Hyo

    Again, dropping her boyfriend’s name from the very first sentences. How lame, unprofessional and so on. You’re not able to get people notice you so you (or your PR) desperately cling on his name every time AND always stating how private she is and reluctant to talking about him. Do you you think we’re stupid, girl? Take your toys somewhere else, you’re disgusting…

    Finally notoriously private Alicia opens up about her relationship with Fassbender. Why? The movie date release is fast approaching!
    And, seriously, a veteran actor like Fassbender asking her what he should do? How full of herself!
